The Canmore Christmas Artisans Market

November 25th, we joined our girls in Canmore prior to this big annual event. Laura has been a participant for several years, this was Denise's first.

In its prior incarnation, started in 1980, as The Canmore Artists & Artisans Guild's Christmas Fair I was the event coordinator for the years 1984 to 1987. Many thanks to the same delightful collectors of my work, back then, for coming out now to support our girls!

We helped Denise make the cloth gift bags and Laura with tree ornaments.

The sisters stalls were side by side and their set up was a very open and friendly one.

It was a full weekend with Canmore kicking off the holidays by closing Main Street (Saturday night) for Christmas celebrations ... carolling, bonfires, sleigh rides and Santa. Plus, there was a high energy opening at Elevation Gallery and, as well, our couples club enjoyed a pizza night. On Sunday it was Grey Cup game festivities and dinner at Bill's sister's place, which became an early birthday celebration for Laura who returned to Libya, December 2nd. At midnight, we arrived home utterly exhaused.
